Depictions of battles against Amazons, a mythical tribe of warrior women, were popular throughout the ancient world, but this scene is unusual: here Amazons fight with satyrs, half-horse, half-human followers of the god Dionysos who often appear in Etruscan art. The scene may refer to Dionysos’s defeat of the Amazons during his conquest of India. The Nazzano Painter is one of the finest Etruscan vase painters, to whom only ten vases have been attributed.
